JFK to stop slaughtering snowy owls...
"The Port Authority is putting a screeching halt on killing the snowy owl at New York airports, bowing to pressure from animal lovers who are angered that the birds were being blasted with shotguns."

However animal lovers remain silent about their beloved wind turbines and their daily slaughter of endangered species.
So, perhaps JFK should install the more effective bird killing machines called Windmills, rather than those nasty shotguns.
If there is anything that animal lovers love more than animals it's green energy.

Snowy owls like this one can fly a little easier near New York City airports, now that the Port Authority will end its kill plan.

Why don't they just design a windmill with a cage around it, enough for air to flow but small enough to keep the bigger birds out ?

Have you ever seen one of these monsters up close?

The support towers are often 200 to 300 feet tall with the blades adding an additional 70 to 130 feet or more.
The structure to support such a screen would be massive and cost prohibitive. (250 cu yds of concrete is already required just to support one tower and the 48,000 lb turbine assembly!)
Also, wind turbines are not very efficient. Adding any type of screen would dramatically decrease this efficiency.
Additionally, the tips of the turbine can reach speeds of over 200 MPH which could create even greater noise pollution as the turbulence hits any nearby screen.

A 1.5 MW wind turbine of a type frequently seen in the United States has a tower 80 meters (260 ft) high. The rotor assembly (blades and hub) weighs 22,000 kilograms (48,000 lb). The nacelle, which contains the generator component, weighs 52,000 kilograms (115,000 lb). The concrete base for the tower is constructed using 26,000 kilograms (58,000 lb) of reinforcing steel and contains 190 cubic meters (250 cu yd) of concrete. The base is 15 meters (50 ft) in diameter and 2.4 meters (8 ft) thick near the center.
Not all the energy of blowing wind can be harvested, since conservation of mass requires that as much mass of air exits the turbine as enters it. Betz' law gives the maximal achievable extraction of wind power by a wind turbine as 59% of the total kinetic energy of the air flowing through the turbine.
Further inefficiencies, such as rotor blade friction and drag, gearbox losses, generator and converter losses, reduce the power delivered by a wind turbine. Commercial utility-connected turbines deliver about 75% of the Betz limit of power extractable from the wind, at rated operating speed.

I'd rather use solar than something that makes that much noise. I'm fine with coal fired plants, been working for a long time, they could develop better filters on the smokestacks to cut down on the polution. Solar farms are not very sightly in a country setting, maybe locate remotely and plant pines around it.

Wind-Energy Lobby Gets Blown Away

A California judge rules in favor of bald eagles and against 30-year permits to shred them

On Aug. 11, a federal judge in the Northern District of California shot down a rule proposed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) that would have allowed the wind industry to legally kill bald eagles and golden eagles for up to three decades.

Did you hear about the drone that spied on a monk sunbathing on top of a wind turbine?
What I learned is that the $2,000,000 wind turbine (paid for by taxpayer money) was motionless.
What a racket.

Germany's green zealots collide over wind energy.

 

Enoch zu Guttenberg, one of Germany’s most prolific environmentalists has become an outspoken critic of wind energy in Germany, and believes children in the future will be able to see Germany’s idyllic landscape only in paintings as developers clear hill-top forests to make way for skyscraper-size industrial wind turbines.

 

Guttenberg talks of “hundreds of local citizens’ initiatives” that are now mobilizing against wind projects. Spiegel writes of new resistance that governments now need to confront as many traditional environmentalists now rail against what they view as a “corruption of green party members, environmental groups, local politicians and city councils“.

 

So divided the environmentalists have become that Germany’s powerful BUND (Friends of the Earth Germany) launched a slander lawsuit against Guttenberg after he accused the organization of having “merged” with the Wind Lobby. BUND later dropped the suit. Since then Guttenberg has compared the BUND directors to Judas and accused them of having sold out the environmental philosophy for a “dish of lentil”. Leading environmental activists today are now saying: “The color of sleaze is no longer black, rather it is green.”

 

The environmental movement has become so disunified, Spiegel writes, that once diehard nuclear energy opponents have now switched to protesting wind turbines, as many planning boards ignore concerns of the citizens and attempt to steamroll projects through against the public will.

Dear German eco-zealots,

 

The reason why your countryside is littered with gigantic industrial wind turbines is because wind energy is dilute energy.  It takes vast areas to produce small amounts of expensive intermittent energy.

 

For example - 

 

U.K. takes down data showing footprint of nuclear vs. “renewables”:

 

Acres required to power 6 million homes:

 

Wind 250,000
Solar 130,000 
Nuclear 430

 

The Daily Telegraph calls it “the infographic the U.K. government doesn’t want you to see.”

Former German supporters now in open revolt against Green Energy.

 

The mood has turned 180° since the early days. Once welcome, Germany’s Energiewende is now being met with shock and outrage as the environmental destruction takes on unforeseen dimensions.

 

Now that Germany’s Energiewende has been in full swing for a number of years, many leading environmentalists are in a state of shock as huge areas of the country are being deforested and landscapes disfigured to make way for hundreds of wind turbines.

 

Environmentalist Georg Etscheit is a regular contributor at Germany’s leading climate alarmism site, Klimaretter, and he as well has had enough. Etscheit will be releasing a book in early November.

 

New, soon-to-be released book slams Germany’s Energiewende: “Sacrificed Landscapes – How the Energiewende Is Destroying our Landscapes.”

 

 

Jörg Rehmann, journalist and author:

If we want to survive on this planet, we need an Energiewende. But what the policymakers have made of it is not an Energiewende, rather it is the greatest fraud project since the end of the second world war.”

 

Prof. Dr. Niko Paech:

Science is legitimizing a rampage against nature. We destroy the landscape while we claim it is serving the ecology. It’s a cannibalism by the measures. Climate protection is the aim that justifies the means to destroy all other remaining environmental media.”

 

Jörg Rehmann adds:

Serious science has long proven that the Energiewende cannot in any way reach its targets. Society has to bear billions in costs, already energy prices are exploding, and policymakers are driving us further into a nuthouse in the clouds.”

GREEN MURDERS

We don't need no stinkin' animals!

We have screwy lightbulbs!

Wind farms could be killing 80,000 bats a year, new study finds

A survey of 29 wind farms showed that 194 bats a month were killed, although the figure is likely to be higher because many of the dead creatures would have fallen prey to scavengers.

 

If the figure was extrapolated to all of Britain’s onshore wind farms it could mean that around 80,000 bats are being killed each year by turbines. The research also showed that the risk of bat death increased by 18 per cent for each extra metre of blade length. Some individual turbines were found to kill around five bats a month.

 

“It may be possible bats actually alter their behaviour once the turbines are built.

“Bats have been around for at least 30 million years and during that time have been able to fly happily without the risk of colliding with a spinning object.
